Lots of new light rail links planned for Sydney. An opinion piece on it here. The link to Gladesville would mean a trip to the city would take 11 minutes, far faster than a car in peak hour.
But can the government deliver? I don't trust our state politicians one bit. The current incumbency has the whiff of corruption about it.
At least the proposal for this new system is that it be built and maintained by the private sector.
Below walking and cycling, public transport is my favourite way of getting around. You can get a lot of work and reading done if you get a seat in the right spot.
Taxis are good too. They are multiple times cheaper than buying a second car, which costs hundreds of dollars a week to run when you include depreciation in the cost, which you should.
